Awful Movies Wiki:Rules Regarding Video Upload from YouTube

From Awful Movies Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Whilst we relish any sort of scathing and hilarious reviews about some of the many beloved and detested awful movies out there, we want to keep the amount of videos displayed to a minimum as well retain the integrity of the wiki. Because of this, only videos by YouTube reviewers who meet the following criteria will be displayed on movie pages.


  • Must have at least 20k or more subscribers.
  • The channel doesn't consist solely of reaction videos and must have at least one review of a movie.
    • Reaction videos to movies will not be featured on the page. Reaction clips found within the review however is acceptable.
  • Channel must have been active for more than a year exact since its creation.
    • Ie. If the channel was created on January 1st, 2016, it will only be accepted once it's reached January 1st, 2017.
  • Must have at least one video review criticizing a film that's featured on the wiki. Can also be pretending to come off as positive out of irony.

Once the channel meets all of the criteria listed above, it must be then accepted by the admins, but this won't mean it will definitely be accepted depending on the channel's quality of its content and other circumstances. Admins will still monitor videos uploaded despite the rules and they'll still have the duty to delete possible bad quality videos despite being allowed.

Automatic Approval Exceptions

  • Reviews from TV shows which are syndicated nationally in any country which have their reviews featured on YouTube ie. Siskel and Ebert, Mystery Science Theatre 3000, are automatically accepted regardless.
  • Any channel which is part of a network that is mentioned below ie. Film Brain which is a member of Channel Awesome, they will also be automatically accepted regardless of their subscriber count or date of channel creation.
  • Any video uploaded by a channel officially affiliated with the film.
    • Official trailers uploaded by either an official or unofficial affiliate will be featured regardless (does not include fan edited trailers).
    • Videos by unofficial channels which aren't trailers must first meet the criteria above.
  • Any trailer from YouTube channels owned by notable news and pop-culture websites ie. IGN, GameSpot, TIME, Huffington Post, BBC, WhatCulture, Nerdist, etc., will be automatically accepted, but no reviews in the risk that they may be "corrupted".
  • A secondary channel owned by one of the accepted channels listed below will be automatically accepted, but the video featured from that channel must be of a film review.
  • A review by one of the accepted accounts below uploaded as a mirror by a non-affiliated channel is automatically accepted. Ie. JonTron Archive, not officially owned by JonTronShow but kept as a mirror for his reviews.
    • However any other reviews from that channel, unless one of the accepted accounts below, will first need to meet the criteria above and be accepted by the admins.

If you would like to suggest another channel, contact an admin about it and be patient, since the review of an entire YouTube channel will inevitably take several days, if not weeks. The list of the admins is displayed on the main page and in the community messages.
